Pumpkin Color by Number for Sarah and by Math Problems for Flossie.
Pumpkin Exploration. We used our NOWVILLE EXPLORATION PAGE and this PUMPKIN INVESTIGATION WORKSHEET. Flossie got right in there and cleaned out all of here seeds all by herself. Sarah did NOT like the feel of the inside of the pumpkin. She said it was GROSS! Both girls were very surprised when their pumpkins floated. Sarah was sure her pumpkin would sink even after seeing Flossie's float. Flossie hated the taste of the pumpkin seeds we cooked. Sarah loved them! I let the girls count their seeds by themselves without any help just to see how they would do. They did this together. They counted perfectly up to twenty and then they asked for help. I told them what came next and then they started counting on their own again. Somehow they came up with something like 35 seeds. There were clearly way more than that, but that was ok. We haven't really worked too much on higher numbers. I was busy printing out their pictures for their lab sheets and was just listening with one ear :) The talk between the two of them about what number should come next was funny. There was lots of giggling going on.
